It can be a hassle carrying that bike lock around but how about a lock that’s disguised as a water bottle.
As cyclists, we’ve probably been a victim of bike theft or know someone who has. I’ve had a bicycle nicked, oddly enough from a secure location, which required a code to enter the premises.
As the senior member of the Going Going Bike team, I’m old enough to remember Public Information Films of the 1970s. These generally low budget low quality short films were government commissioned films on a particular subject that ranged from issues such as surviving a nuclear attack, protecting the environment, to crime prevention.
Thieves know how to steal a bike. Even if locked. As a result it is important to know how to lock a bike securely to make life tough for bike thieves and make sure you are not another victim of cycle theft.
